Is the California Lead Ban coming to Arizona?

On Friday Jan 18th the Arizona Game & Fish Commission will be discussing issues related to gun owners & hunters in a meeting open to the public located at the Arizona Game and Fish Department at 5000 W Carefree Hwy starting at 8 AM. Item # 10 on the announced agenda is of particular concern to me because it is to discuss "issues associated with lead from spent ammunition":

10. Presenter: Ron Sieg, Flagstaff Regional Supervisor. Presentation and discussion regarding issues associated with lead from spent ammunition, current Department programs and ideas regarding any future program . The Commission will be provided with a presentation on issues associated with lead from spent ammunition, updated on current Department sport harvest programs and offered some ideas regarding any future program. The Commission may vote to provide direction to the Department on this issue .
The NRA-ILA has issued an alert asking all gun owners to attend the meeting to present our viewpoint.

Hat tip to Call Me Ahab.

Update - good news!
